If there is one thing I am great at (and obsessed with), it is scheduling, organizing, and efficiency. I am a planner. I like to know what my weeks and months are going to look like. I love to know what my today and tomorrow is going to look like. I like lists. I like crossing things off said lists. I don’t like to waste time. This is what works for me.
First things first, I have a planner. I am on my third planner now. I use the monthly portion of the planner to write down appointments, special dates, and reminders. The things I don’t really need to have on my mind for a while. I don’t write anything in the weekly portion until the Sunday before. That’s when I sit down and plan what my next week is going to look like.
Secondly, I use the calendar app on my phone. When it’s not convenient to get to the planner, I just add events on my phone and I reference back to it later.
Thirdly, I have an app on my phone called “Google Keep.” I use this app for a variety of things. I have two to-do lists, one for today and one for tomorrow. Every night, before bed, I go over my planner and I update my to-do list for the next day and the next day after that. I also keep track of my monthly expenses and savings on this app. I write down motivational quotes, goals, schoolwork, grocery list, shopping list, reminders, and so on. I also write things I want to plan to do one day, just not sure when. All of these things are separated. Needless to say, I am on this app all day everyday.
If you guys would like to know more, just let me know. I could get into the specifics of whatever part you’re interested in. I highly suggest the planner, the calendar, and Google Keep. I use all three, but maybe one of them will be enough for ya! What’s your Monday going to look like? How about your week?
